EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH –BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center has moved their annual Rockin' at the Swamp event to a month long celebration in March to reduce crowds and ensure patron safety. During the month of March, Swamp visitors will be able to collect a Rockin’ Explorer Pack and discover the exciting world of rocks, minerals, gemstones, and fossils. Using the pack’s Field Guide or the Swamp's Rock Walk on the trails, participants will learn to identify different stones and make their own take-home identification card. They can also try out some rockin’ crafts or color their own Rock Animal in the Swamp's craft corner. Bluebonnet Swamp welcomes guests to this safe and month-long celebration of fun highlighting geology and earth science through a bit of onsite fun and take-home activities.
Standard Admission Applies: $3 for adults, $2 for children ages 3-17, free for children ages 2 and younger; pass discounts available. Rockin’ Explorer Pack is $5 or included with the purchase of an adult and child admission ticket to the Swamp.
